Authorities in Fulton County are trying to locate a man after he allegedly shot and killed his girlfriend Wednesday.

Fabien Perry, 27, is wanted on murder charges in the killing of 23-year-old Johana Cabrales-Hernandez, Roswell police spokesman Tim Lupo said. Officers have secured warrants for Perry but are still working to arrest him and believe he may have fled the state.

Perry is also wanted in an October 2021 incident, when he allegedly punched a woman in the face during a fit of road rage brought on when she was too slow to move at a green light in Alpharetta. Police have warrants in that case for charges of battery, criminal trespass, aggressive driving and hit-and-run.

When Cabrales-Hernandez’s two younger children were dropped off at a nearby family member’s home by an unidentified person, Lupo said the family became concerned about her well-being. Officers rushed to her home in the 100 block of Old Ferry Road just past midnight and found her dead from a gunshot wound, according to Lupo.

Evidence gathered during the investigation led officers to identify Perry as a suspect, he said.

“Investigators believe this to be an isolated domestic incident, however Perry should be considered armed and dangerous,” Lupo said.

Police described him as 5-foot-8 and about 165 pounds. He is believed to be driving a red, four-door Honda Civic.
